Magical Experience my @$$. Note 9 can't stay connected to two Laptops I tried. As soon as it's paired, the connection is lost and will not connect again. Only "Magical" thing I have experienced is a very badly designed app that doesn't work at all. Now Samsung Sidesync, that application does give a "Magical Experience". Abracadabra, bring back Sidesync!

Hello, Luis Nido Sorry for your inconvenience. WiFi Direct connectivity may be unstable for several reasons. Samsung Flow is going to support WiFi connection. It will be supported at the beginning of next year. Thank you.

Great idea, very poorly executed. Constantly looses connection and very difficult to reconnect. Won't work my Samsung tablet. Can't easily transfer photos from phone to PC. All it's good for is reading and responding to texts using the PC, but that can be done with the Microsoft My Phone app which also allows easy picture transfer. Go with the MS app!

I just way to say how much I love Samsung phones. But... This app is really bad. Sidesync was way better. It was more beautiful and it worked. This app works when it wants to. It Connects to the phone whenever it wants. Most of the time it won't. Is it really that hard to add a button that will let you manually reconect your phone when the app decides it doesn't want to recognize that your trying to Connect to it? Most of the time I have to restart my computer just to get the app to realize that I'm trying to connect my phone. Also please black out the outside borders when in screen mirror mode. Noone wants to watch a mirrored video with a white glaring background. Samsung please fix this. I love you guys. I will not put up with medeocre apps like this though. If you can't make this work. go back to sidesync it was a wonderful app. At least it worked.

Hello, Sorry for your inconvenience. Because there are changes about USB policy of recent android models and windows 10 store app policy, service for SideSync is ending. We are doing our best to add main feature of SideSync to Samsung Flow as soon as possible. Again, we regret any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you.
